    Nicole Kidman says the coronavirus pandemic has been “very difficult” for her daughters

    The 53-year-old actress has Sunday Rose, 12, and Faith Margaret, nine, with her husband Keith Urban, and has said that whilst the girls are used to studying online because of their parents’ globetrotting careers, being socially distanced from their friends and loved ones has been especially hard for them amid the global health crisis


    She said: "Our kids - because we travel, and we won't be apart - are used to having to learn online, but the social distance has been very difficult for them. They are working through the emotions.

    “For a 12 year old, it's about not being able to access friends easily - that's a whole thing which every parent will be going through. And then, there's a 9 year old, who's socially forming. One of the hardest things is just watching them pine and yearn for their friends. I pine and yearn for my friends too.”

    But Nicole - who also has two adult children, son Connor, 25, and daughter Isabella, 27, with ex-husband Tom Cruise - and her daughters have at least been able to socialise with Nicole’s sister Antonia and three of her kids, as they moved in with her whilst the star was filming ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ in Australia.

    Speaking to Glamour UK magazine about the full house, she said: "I just love kids. I said once, 'I prefer children to adults.' I like adults more now, not more than kids, though. I love being around children and we've got five kids living with me now because Keith had to go back [to Nashville] to release his album. So, my sister moved in to help me while I'm filming, and we have three of her younger kids - she has six - living with us.

    "It's just fun because I just find their perspective not so heavy. It puts you in a more childlike place where you go, 'I can move through this and it can be fleeting. It doesn't have to become a massive weight.’ ”
